Neelam Heera

Our founder started Cysters in 2015 as way to combat some of the misconceptions around reproductive health. Neelam felt that issues around women’s reproductive health can often be trivialised by healthcare professionals and sexualised by the ethnic community due to cultural beliefs.

What started as social media page to vent some of her frustrations at her diagnosis and lack of understanding, grew into a support group for other women with similar stories to a registered charity. The growth has been organic and reflective of the cultural and community needs around reproductive health.
